Rada’s new timed flow controls meet the toughest benchmarks

15 September 2011

Rada – worldwide experts in commercial showering, washroom controls, fittings and systems - has brought out an improved range of Timed Flow controls that will help specifiers and facilities managers meet the increasingly stringent rules governing both energy and water consumption.

The latest models combine the best of contemporary design with the rugged practicality needed for the most demanding applications - every product in the range has undergone a rigorous 250,000 on/off test cycle. Ease of maintenance – a crucial factor in minimising downtime and costs – is guaranteed with an all-in-one cartridge.

Importantly, each model enables the flow rate to be adjusted to meet various benchmarks for water and energy consumption, such as those laid out in BREEAM. The BREEAM Water Use Benchmark says that in the best of buildings water consumption is less than 1.5m3 per person per year but in the worst would be 4.5m3 or more. This range of timed flow controls will enable compliance with BREEAM – and other benchmarks – in a wide range of conditions and applications.

The hand washing range of taps is grouped into Timed Flow, Timed Flow Plus and Timed Flow Select to reflect their added specifications. Timed Flow taps are simply styled and robust, made with applications such as washrooms in schools, prisons, university accommodation and local authority sports facilities in mind. Timed Flow Plus range offers contemporary design/styling in a range of deck or panel mounting options for applications where deliberate damage is not so great a risk. The Timed Flow Select range combines elegant designs, suitable for upmarket installations with far greater control; both the time and the flow rate can be adjusted while the mixer options allow temperature adjustment.

The Timed Flow and Timed Flow Plus ranges of shower controls are designed specifically to meet the demands of high usage environments such as leisure clubs and sports facilities and so combine exceptional durability with ease of servicing. The Timed Flow range is a simple and robust design that will complement any leisure and sports environment while Timed Flow Plus offers three push-button models that meet the higher design criteria of the upmarket installation.

The Timed Flow ranges make control of water and energy consumption simple with products that are robust, easily installed and maintained and well-designed. They bring sophisticated design and the highest engineering standards to a wide range of sectors, in particular education, sports & leisure, public washrooms and commercial offices.
